COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The king of the abbey beers. It is amber-gold and pours with a deep head and original aroma, delivering a complex, full bodied flavour. Pure enjoyment! Secondary fermentation in the bottle. (Temp: 8-10ºC)

jujubeast6000 (854) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2006
750mL bottle: Pours a very bubbly, golden yellow clearish color, big head, fine bubbles. Aroma of dark fruit, plum, citrus, rich, not strong. Bubbly taste, citrus, some alcohol, not very complex. Very light tasting but not much flavor.

HomesickAlien (20) - Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2006
Pours hazy gold with a medium sized fluffy white head of tiny bubbles, lots of sticky lacing. Aromas of yeast, banana, apple, coriander. Flavor matches aromas, fruity and yeasty with some spice and a hint of hops. Alcohol is well hidden. It’s sweet but not cloying, a pretty tasty triple. Mouthfeel is fizzy and foamy. Too much carbonation for my liking. This stuff just expands in your mouth with harsh carbonation. Too bad because it tastes really good.

Quinten (1056) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 16, 2006
Dark colden color, big foamy head, aroma of yeast, banana, some citrus, fully complex one but not to overwalming. one of the better triple.

EithCubes (5426) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Bottle. Hazy golden-amber pour with a more stable head than the Blond, beautifully rocky and lacing. Smells sweet and malty, prevalent spiciness from coriander. Light fruitiness and alcohol, some yeast. As for the taste, crisp and medium-alcoholic, smooth feel with orange peels and spicey coriander, yeast, pepper. Pleasantly warming. A subtle and top-shelf Tripel, though I’d still rather have a Karmeliet.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2006 Pours deep gold color,nice head. Very flavorful, hints of citrus. First couple of sips very dry, then the maltyness evens it out. Very drinkable, alcohol well hidden.

Bartzilla (597) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Hooray for beer. This is a pretty standard tripel, but that in it’s own right makes it pretty good. I like the Affligem beers. Economical without sacrificing too much in the quality department. I had this in a bottle from Baron’s Marketplace and then on tap at the San Diego Brewing Company. The stuff will get you to orbit quickly.

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 7, 2006
2001: Pour is dark hazy golden with a pretty impressive head, since it is over 5 years old...very very yeasty aroma, citrus, pepper, cloves...bread too...taste is bitter and spicy at first, turning a little citric and sweet...fizzy mouthfeel still...finish is a little sour...sort of strange...

lincoln1965 (5) - Pueblo, Colorado, USA - MAY 4, 2006 does not count
Tasted from 750ml bottle. the initial aroma was of Light yeasty and toasted malt. The head was frothy, off white that lasted for the majority of the time in the glass. When it did dissipate, it left ample lacing. The color was a hazy yellow amber color. The initial flavor was strong hoppy and alcholic with malty finish that lasted quite a while. somewhat mossy flavor. My first Belgian ale. It was good.

chicagobears (444) - Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2006
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2007 Hazy gold with creamy white head. Very lively. Chalky texture, has a real spicy, nutty medicinal flavor, slightly fruity. Pretty complex. Finishes dry and oily. I like this, but I thought it would be better. I enjoyed this beer so much more the second time around. I re-rated from 3.2 to 3.9

hazy brown gold with a medium sized white head that settles into a thin creamy layer. yeast, spice, lemon, peach, tropical fruit aroma. yeast, candy, peach and alcohol in the flavor. the alcohol shows through a little too much. i also taste something medicinal occasionally.
